The tragic death of a young Aboriginal man
On January 16 1988, a train driver was making a run from Tamworth towards Sydney. Shortly after leaving the city limits, the driver noticed something lying on the tracks. With horror, he realised it was a person.
This grim discovery kicked off a 30+ year fight to get justice. And revealed deep-seated roots of racism within the justice system.

Allan Clarke wrote an excellent article for the ABC that details Mark’s case. Without Allan, this case, and many others like it, wouldn’t have the media coverage they deserve. He deserves massive credit for the hard work he’s done to get justice for so many Aboriginal families.
